See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association. So, at this point (7/19), in Virginia we’re at 77,430 total reported – confirmed plus probable – cases (note that actual cases, as well as deaths, could be higher, maybe even a LOT higher, based on stories like this one in the NY Times), 7,165 hospitalizations and 2,027 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,057 (+1.4%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly higher rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 940 (+1.2%). The number of TOTAL test results was 998,292 (up 19,652 from 978,640 yesterday), which is still well below what we need, according to researchers at Harvard (that would be 22,422/day for mitigation, 81,741/day for suppression). As for hospitalizations, they went up 18 (+0.3%), from 7,147 to 7,165, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 60 (+0.8%). Deaths are reported up 2 (from 2,025 to 2,027, compared to an increase of 12 (from 2,013 to 2,025) the previous day.
